(puts Trusted User hat on)

@manuelschneid3r, you are doing the right thing by correctly including makedepends for an optional compile-time feature. Thank you for improving the AUR by maintaining packages, and moreso by not bowing to peer pressure.

Everyone else: stop arguing and trying to convince the maintainer to do the wrong thing. This is how optdepends work. Don't try to have us intercede and take the package away from @manuelschneid3r, since we agree with the current policy.

You're free to modify and customize the PKGBUILD to tweak its build parameters for your non-default builds, this is pretty trivial to do when it's a git repository -- commit your changes, then use git rebase to replay those changes on top of every new update.

The next guy who complains about this will wake me from my slumber and get his account suspended.

I feel like it's a valid argument for an optional plugin that isn't even enabled by default. Why would you need to install Virtualbox and install the vbox kernel module?

A simple application launcher like this shouldn't need to touch DKMS or install Virtualbox for such a simple feature. o.O

@manuelschneid3r Have you addressed @NEUROT1K's comments Re: hard dependency on VirtualBox? I think those comments are totally valid.

VirtualBox should be strictly optional IMHO.

The package should not provide itself or conflict its VCS alternatives. Only 'albert-git' should conflict and provide 'albert'.

Can you remove "-j $((nproc+1))". This violates any user preference set in makepkg.conf

Can you remove VERBOSE=1 from the make command to clean up the installation output a bit?

Sorry guys I got too much issues complaining about the missing optional dependencies. I hope you can handle the 7 MB of extra space for the qml dependencies.
